Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3-What shines through in both of these books is Gibbons's dedication to presenting the games as fun. Each volume outlines all of the necessary equipment and rules and describes a fictitious game to demonstrate the facts. The illustrations, especially those of the players, clearly reflect the action. Both entries have a glossary with key terms, including important concepts such as teamwork and sportsmanship. Excellent choices for beginner players and readers.

From Booklist

Reviewed with Gibbons' My Basketball Book.

Ages 5-7. Gibbons introduces the basics of basketball and football in two small-format paperback books. Each book identifies the equipment, the court or field, the positions of the players, and a few rules of the game. In the brightly colored artwork, young players, both boys and girls, illustrate this introductory information, then begin a game that adds a touch of narrative and allows for explanation without the tedium of listing one rule after another. Bas ketball begins "Basketball is fun, whether you are playing yourself or rooting for your favorite team." A similar sentence leads off in Football , and that low-key message is at the heart of both presentations. The books don't cover all the rules; indeed, for kids who are intently interested, they will raise as many questions as they answer. Instead, they offer a starting point for young children trying to figure out what's going on in the sport or how to get in the game. Carolyn Phelan

I ordered this book for a man and his son that are from Indonesia. They were very interested in how the game of American football is played. i ordered this particular book, thinking that it would be easy to understand with the pictures and the simple instructions and rules of the game in English. (They are learning English too). It certainly was the right choice for them. They could understand what they were reading and now they understand American football much better!!

Got this book for my granddaughter to learn about what's going on during the games she watches her daddy coach. Very good work done by author. I even learned a few new things too. This is the second one I have bought for kids who have daddies coaching high school football. Sure helps them learn terms, game and equipment. Helps to see what daddy is doing as a coach. Won't hesitate to buy another in the future.

My nephew has been obsessed with football from the moment he could grasp a pigskin in his little hands. This book is the perfect combination of picture book and football primer for a 5-year-old. It may also be instructive for people who've always missed several of the more basic aspects of the game. You will know what each player's role is in the game (beyond your basic wide receiver, quarterback, etc), and the key points will be clear. Ahm. Not that you don't already know those things (nudge nudge).

Excellent book for young boys who love football. Our six-year-old grandson loves football on TV and know all the teams and most of the players. He has played one year of flag football and loved it! He was thrilled with this book that explains the terms of football and helps him understand it better. So glad I found it for him.

And so it begins, our son has been indoctrinated into the world of football. This book is very cute the images, but illustrations are good and my son loves it! This is a great book for any family that loves football and wants to share it with their kids
